Husband of the Year

At Sublime Bakery we like to say "we make life sweet". It's more than our tagline, it's really the underlying philosophy for everything we do here. Every now and then a client will redefine the whole idea of "sweet" for us. Well, this is just the sweetest thing you'll hear all day, I guarantee it.

So, about two weeks ago I get this email from a prospective client, asking if we can do a gluten free cake for he and his wife's anniversary that's coming up in a week. Since the wedding they have discovered that she has a gluten allergy so they can't eat the top tier of their cake that they saved for the occasion. He wants to surprise her with an anniversary cake that won't make her sick. He's thrilled to have found a natural bakery that does gluten free cakes and is so grateful (and totally polite I might add) that we can take his order. Already I'm thinking that he's a contender for Husband of the Year, but here's the kicker... he lives in Lubbock and is going to drive into Fort Worth just to pick up the cake! That's a TEN HOUR ROUND TRIP!!!!!! Seriously! If that's not sweet then I don't know what is!

Well, we were all just thrilled to be in on the surprise, and were so delighted to meet Jeremy when he came to pick up his cake. He was as sweet and polite in person as he was in his email.
The picture above is of Jeremy and his gorgeous bride on their wedding day. We recreated the look of the top tier with a fondant band and sugar flowers on top of our gluten free cake (see photo below).

Thanks Jeremy, you made our day sweet! We hope to see you again next year!!


  1. I would just like to thank you. You and your bakery made my day! I was so worried about eating cake with my husband on our first anniversary. I had found your bakery online a few weeks before our anniversary when we were going to be in the area. We were unable to stop by. You are a God send to people with allergies. The cake was AMAZING. GREAT JOB!!!!! I can't wait to come and meet yall and pick up another big order. We may have many people stop by and get stuff for us. Once again, thank you soo much. We REALLY appreciate you!

  2. What a sweet guy! If more husbands/wives were as thoughtful and caring as he is, the divorce rate would go down considerably!!!

    Congrats Robin & Jeremy on your 1st anniversary!
